Grey seal

This one's got me! I can not tell if it is a pup or an adult, I think it is a pup from the shape but not sure. It actually looks more like a walrus than a grey seal!

Sleepy bull

It was an adult male, but you can't see his profile from this angle and he was quite 'pristine' in terms of not having a lot of scar tissue 'round his neck from fighting. Looks like he just couldn't be bothered with scrapping over females and preferred to keep himself looking quite new!
